The Ducks have 19 verbal commits, including the newest and splashiest one, Arik Armstead. Counting Darron Thomas' full ride they have about six more scholarships to award. Here are the targets for those crucial six additions:

Shaq Thompson

The 6-2, 215-lb. safety is deciding between Washington, Oregon and Cal. Speculation centers around  Washington as Thompson just took a weekend visit there, has a close friend on the team, and has developed a bond with new Washington coach Tosh Lupoi.

Bralon Addison and Chance Allen

The two swift, athletic wide receivers visited Oregon this week and are childhood friends, playing at rival schools a few miles from each other in Missouri City, Texas. Both originally committed to other schools but came away impressed by their Oregon visit.

Shane Brostek

Profiled Sunday in The Duck Stops Here, Brostek is a 6-3, 300-lb. offensive lineman from Hawaii with tremendous agility for his size, able to pull, slide-step and block downfield, a great fit for the Oregon offense.

Bryan Harper, athlete

Harper is solidly built at 6-0, 180, so tremendously athletic he's played quarterback, running back, receiver and defensive back for his high school team, Colony High, which finished 11-2 and made it to the CIF semi-finals.

Jeremy Poutasi, offensive line

Poutasi was a Utah commit, but visited Oregon in January and left impressed. He's big and mobile like Brostek, a solid line prospect with the smarts and agility Oregon coaches like.

Julian Brooks, athlete

Brooks is another tall, physical receiver who is also a hard-hitting safety. Oregon's only recently been talking with him after he decommitted from Arizona.

There are some other possibilities, but these seven are all intriguing prospects with talent. Thompson is the biggest prize. The rest could become solid college players, and have the attitude and work ethic to fit in at Oregon.
